** ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes'' has a specific type of door that only appears in an enemy fight, requiring you to turn away from the enemies to scan it.

** ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes'' has the Ing Webtrap, a specific type of door that only appears ''once'' during a battle in an enemy fight, requiring you to turn away from Dark Agon Wastes and never shows up again for the enemies rest of the game. Your only shot is to scan it.it before dealing with the enemy Ing that appear.

* BenJordan 2 Deluxe has a point you're virtually guaranteed to miss the first time through: [[spoiler:You have to return the bowl you borrow from Annie]]. The PointOfNoReturn doesn't help either. Might be [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as getting all the points unlocks [[spoiler:an additional, spoiler-heavy end cutscene]].
* ''VideoGame/{{The Amazon Trail}}'' has a few last lousy animals when it comes to photographing all the animal and plant species.

*** Even worse, to get 100% on the Collectors Book you have to get Zelos as your best friend. The guy barely trusts you when he joins the team and takes a lot to win over. Even if you do everything right it may still take more than one playthrough to get him. Oh, and some of the choices that make him like you more have a negative effect on other people (like the equally difficult, Presea, who fortunately doesn't give you anything for the Collector's Book).

** There's the usual 100% items, monsters, weapons, armor, etc. But then there are the skits. The optional, story or even completion level dependent cutscenes that pop up. They can be easy to miss, since they don't instantly start, and only give that option after a few seconds pause. If your hurrying along, you can easily miss them. Some are only available in ONE specific room after ONE specific event. Also, they usually have their own completion counter, and when some skits only show up on certain story paths, of which there can be more than one, you have to play through the game more than once.

** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' has 96 exits all up. Most levels after the first world have two possible exits. The hardest to find is almost certainly the exit that leads to Soda Lake in Cheese Bridge Area: you have to fly ''under'' the exit gate (without going off the bottom of the screen, of course)--going above it will end the level--and come to a landing on a platform ''behind'' it. It's not that hard for a skilled flyer, but you have to somehow figure it out or have a remarkably happy accident before you even know that's where it is. You can also use Yoshi to make it easier, but good luck maneuvering through the moving sawmills to rach the exit in the first place (Mario can't use the ropes when he's mounting Yoshi).

** Both Meat Boy and Bandage Girl require fighting all four of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse bosses in one run. And while having the Book of Revelations helps guarantee you a fight with a horsemen, the fact that Death can be replace with Conquest (who only drops the White Pony item) makes this even more luck-based. Again, ''Afterbirth'' makes this a ''lot'' easier using a trick involving the Box of Friends.

** The Boto, or river dolphin, is another annoying rare spawn creature, but it's not as bad as the manatee. Unlike the manatee, the Boto initially sits under the water with its back protruding from the edge of the screen. Sometimes it disappears for good once it jumps. The good news is that it takes a while for the Boto to jump, so you have ample time to photograph it (if you don't mind a poor quality picture).

** That darn Amazonian Manatee. It only pops its head out for a few seconds and that's it. You miss it, and it's gone for good. Time to head back to the boat, and try again. It's even hard to tell whether or not it spawned at all since the manatee doesn't appear immediately.

** The pirarucu in the FishingMinigame. It's the biggest fish in the game and catching it is needed for OneHundredPercentCompletion. But it shows up ''very'' rarely. Expect to wait a long time at the fishing screen, that is, ''if'' it decides to show up.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Forza}}'' ''Horizon'' and its sequels is another Last Lousy Road example since each game has an achievement tied to driving on every single road on the map. The third game is arguably the worst. Some of the roads are quite off the beaten path, and some dead ends and even driveways count as roads. Not only that, but such roads are depicted as a dotted line on the map making it even more confusing. Good luck trying to find that last single grayed out dash.

* ''Video/MegaManStarForce'' has the player collect Mega Cards. To gain them, you have to defeat stronger versions of the game's main bosses. Some of them really make it hard to get their strongest Mega Cards and if anything, it's much easier to get the 150 Standard Cards and the 5 Giga Cards since you don't have to run around trying to find the boss just to delete them for their cards.
